Maryport town council will continue to work in their office but in isolation on a rota basis.

One of the two clerks at a time will be in the office from 9am to 12l30 and will then work from home as necessary.

There will be no face-to-face communication, but the clerk will be available for phone calls or emails during these hours.

Allotment rent notices have been postponed until all banks are open again.

The council’s Easter event and VE Day commemorations have been cancelled.

Two hundred Easter eggs were donated to the Maryport Foodbank.

Commemorative mugs, bunting and flags had already been ordered for VE Day and will be used for some possible postponed event.

Council meetings, including the annual assembly and AGM have been cancelled and councillors will continue in their existing roles for the foreseeable future.

Council business, where necessary, will be conducted, where open discussions can also take place.
